Urwek UR-202 seems to have a penchant for exotic animals which are quite creatively transformed into an equally exotic and rare selection of watches. Its latest ticking creation is as elusive as its namesake and as magnificently formidable. The extremely limited Urwek UR-202 "White Shark" timepiece chomps down the competition and rules the teeming waters of the watch making world. Encased in a satin and brushed finishing, steel and titanium case, this luxury model sports a whitish hue hence the name "White Shark."
This magnificent specimen belongs to the Urwerk UR-202 series. A different way to tell the time. Confusing at first, but once one gets used to the idea, it actual is more simple than the traditional watch face. In the center of the watch is telescopic minute hands which operate through the center of the revolving and orbiting hour satellites. (Kind of like the planets revolving around the sun, spinning on there own axis- I wonder if Felix Baumgartner and Martin Frei had such galactic thoughts when designing this watch- I have no doubt) The telescopic hands adjust their length to follow three vectors marking the minutes. The dial is large and easy to read , and since the telescopic hands retract, the size of the case is minimized to provide the wearer with absolute comfort. In addition, this unique watch houses an innovative new winding system regulated by compressing air utilizing miniature turbines.
In addition to this ingenouis time display, the dial of the "White Shark" sports a moon phase indicator and a day/night indicator. On the case back is a lever which locks the automatic movement rotor so as to protect the watch during high impact activity thus increasing the general resiliency of the timepiece.

Only 22 timepieces shall be crafted, 11 pieces in 5N red gold, and 11 pieces in platinum. The dial is a mezemerizing composition of three sapphire crystal plates, which are engraved which are engraved with a 3D structured text. A tourbillon is visible at the 6 'o'clock position providing the timepiece with the perception of incredible depth. Greubel Forsey's undeniable success is due to their watch making approach.
Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey has done it again. They have unveiled a timepiece so aesthetically pleasing, one cannot help but stare at it awestruck. Once organized thought enters the mind, one starts to look beyond the beauty and starts to appreciate the magnificent complications that lies within. Of course this all happens quite fast.
Greubel Forsey's latest invention marks the end of the Double Tourbillon 30º Contemporaine Collection, a line which launched the company into the watch making arena just six years ago and achieved outstanding credibility for Greubel Forsey.
Greubel Forsey's Scientific Approach:
Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey success is partly due to their methodical scientific approach to the process of watch making. Striving for perfection can potentially lead watch manufacturers on an endless quest, without a specific goal in sight. This prompted Greubel Forsey's introduction of its innovation platform - Experimental Watch Technology or EWT. This empirical approach utilizes experimentation and resulting data to determine the performance of the watch whilst manipulating different variables and verifying the unknown. This approach is time consuming, but extremely effective, and provides Greubel Forsey with a definite edge in watch technology.EWT has provided Greubel Forsey with the tools to formulate new inventions, two of which are currently in the works: The Binomial, and a cutting edge isochronically stable material used to craft the balance and the spring as well as a spherical Equality Differential harboring its own energy reserve that can offer a constant force to the oscillators.However, scientific approach cannot vouch for the undeniable aesthetic designs and superb finishing of their timepieces. That aspect is acquired by creative minds and exceptional experience.

Another great feature is a chronograph which functions as a stop watch. The sub dials display a 12 hour register, 30 minute register, central second register as well as small seconds dial. A date aperture is placed at the 3 'o' clock position.
A rotor is affixed at the back of the watch so that it swings back and forth while one is wearing the watch while walking. The swivel motion winds the watch. This is the automatic function of the watch.

Angular Momentum created this excellent Koi replica by using high relief engraving on 925 sterling silver and purple gold treated with ruthenium treat surfaces. The watch case is crafted fro Staybrite steel with polished and satin finished surfaces measuring at 43mm wide and a 16mm thick. The thickness enables a space between the sapphire crystal above and the murky scene below creating an impression of murky watery depth. A single diamond eye adds a subtle glamor to an otherwise drab fish. The fish is laying in swirling mud crafted from traditional black Irishime Urushi natural lacquer.
The watch is wound by the swinging motion of ones arm in other words an automatic movement. The time is displayed via a relatively subdued porthole at the 12 'o'clock position. A single disc rotates indicating the time. A black onyx stone cabochon is regally place atop the crown adding a distinct elegance to this unlikely subject matter. A Koi is known for its resilience and durability able to survive in less than optimum conditions. Some can survive over 200 years old and quickly adapt to different environments. In Japan, a Koi is representative of good luck, prosperity, strength of character, perseverance, determination and ambition. It is no wonder Angular Momentum captured the image of a Koi.
